Duncan Brown visits King Robert the Bruce Heritage Centre

The esteemed artist and writer visited the Centre yesterday and was warmly received by those on duty and by visitors alike.  Duncan was able to view and approve a film made by Jim Biddulph of Dumbarton Cine Video and Digital Club in regard to the launch of his book My Hero, My Soldier Laddie, in Renton on 20 March. The film will soon be available on the Artizans website and on Duncan's

Another welcome visitor this week was Bryan Weir, webmaster of a truly great site for anyone with an interest in the history and heritage of the Vale of Leven and surrounding area.  His site really is an example of how it should be done.

Artizans Jim, Paul and Chris have spent much of the week investigating Strathleven Estate with a metal detector. As yet the finds seem unspectacular, but who knows?  Some items merit further investigation.

The school holiday has encouraged a number of younger visitors to the Centre over the past two weeks and it's encouraging to see an interest in their heritage awakening in their youthful and enthusiastic imaginations.
